Grateful Dead Live at Hartford Civic Center on 1983-10-14
Ficca FOB Sony TCD5M with 2 Beyer Dynamic 160's->Sony CDR-W66>EAC>CDWave>CD via Ficca
Subject: First Set for B3 fans
I haven't hunted down other examples but this is the first show I noticed the B3 on every song in Set 1 . . . any others?
Subject: Trey Anastasio's first Dead show
Subject: Fire all night!
Subject: Best sounding source
Scralet intro - short but sweet, check it out
Subject: GREAT (for the '80s)
that said, there are still many little gems spread throughout the '80s, like THIS. wow, this is just one of those diamond in the rough shows,with a tremendous 2nd set...one of the all time scarlet>fires, as many have said, as well as great estimated>eyes.
and i can see why this aud could be preferred to the SBD on Dicks Picks 6 - the tone of jerry's guitar just seems to have a lot more life to it.
Subject: First show
While I was probably flying too high/too young/ too inexperienced to appreciate most of the show, it left me chasing that scarlet>fire transition.
I don't think I ever found anything as good, but the search was awesome.
On the other hand, you don't need any kind of special training to hear either of these problems, you just need a pair of ears.
What I'm wondering is why all of these 4 and 5 star reviews? I mean seriously folks, I've always thought of Heads as serious listeners but this is ridiculous :lol:
Try out the some of the other AUDs here, there's a new Wise Senn 421 source coming too.
Subject: polarity issue - confirmed
Subject: I never argue
Scarlet/Fire was just magic in action...listening to the rest of the show with a big shit-eating grin on my face! Peace
Subject: Great Audience Recording!
By the way, 7-29-88 "audience" recording sounds o.k. on the .mp3 stream, but when I downloaded the .shn files, it is a distorted mess. Dissapointing.
Subject: Another Frosty Suggestion
This Hartford show rocks! The Scarlet>Fire rivals any other version I've heard and the Eyes is a thing of beauty even if there is an unforgivable cut in it! Not much of note in the first set but the second more than makes up for it.

Subject: eyes cut
Subject: Excellent Show
An excellent Scarlet/Fire. "Best Ever" is such a subjective thing but I encourage you to check out the Scarlet/Fire from 9/15/85 - Chula Vista to compare.

THIS is what the internet was created for: sharing kickass live music. god bless and baba boohey to y'all.
Subject: holy crap!
Jerry is right on point in this show. The first set is good enough, but the second set is smoking hot. quite possibly the best Scarlet>Fire I've ever heard and the Space>Spanish Jam>Other One combo has some very inspired, and really intense moments. Definitely download this one.
Subject: Better than the Dicks Picks
I already Have Dicks Picks 6 (this show), but I took a listen to this and I like this AUD better. The SBD on DP6 is a good recording, but it's not as full as the one these guys did and DP6 doesn't even come close to capturing the feel and energy that must have been there the way this recording does. Thanks to Ficca & Brennan and all the other tapers / masterers / etc for all of the work they put into recording and cleaning up shows to share!
Subject: Good Show
Subject: Good Show
Subject: Spanish Jam>Other One...
I must thank Jerome Garcia for all the inspiration he has provided for me over the years. The man was "Mozart" in disguise. He looked me in the eyes once before, and that was the last time I saw the man alive. Warfield, S.F. 1994, JGB. John Kahn was alive then too. I miss them both. Did some hard time for being noticed. It was worth it though.
Anyhow, Jerry's guitar is the "nebula." He taught me most of what I know about tuning in. Thankyou Jerry. I miss you man. I've got a lot more to learn...
Subject: day job
Listening again, Phileshy might have something. I'm a huge fan of Cornell 77 but this scarlet fire could be as good or better. depends one ones taste in jerry's voice at the times. either way a "must"
Subject: Fantastic show!!!!!!
I don't want to spoil the fun but the second set is just epic. The Scarlet>Fire is one of the best ever played, better than 5/8/77 in my opinion. The Eyes>Drums>Spanish jam>Other One is great but the Stella B. is fantastic; one of the all time great Stellas.
